PM Hour

meetings with modi have strict time limits

img-jun15-4NARENDRA Modi works and meets people by the clock. One fine day, Modi met a very senior leader and Member of Parliament of the BJP. It was a long meeting with the prominent leader of the party-the first since Modi took over as the Prime Minister. In the meeting, many issues were discussed-China, US, internal and other important economic issues-and the learned senior BJP leader kept on discussing these pertinent and important problems with the Prime Minister. Whenever a senior leader of the party visits a Prime Minister, time is never a constraint. It is generally a heart-to-heart talk. Even Atal Bihari Vajpayee followed the rule when he was Prime Minister; whenever the seniormost members of the party would meet him, they would feel at home as Vajpayee displayed the patience and time. But this is not the case with Modi. He is stricter about time. As per reports from the PMO, Modi does not like it if somebody crosses the time limit. So, after the meeting with the senior political leader, Modi said, “Sir, I welcome all your suggestions and will try to follow them through and I will be grateful if you keep meeting and enlightening me but there is a request, please keep the time limit in mind.” The senior leader was aghast as nobody had spoken to him in such a manner in such a long career. Clearly, times have changed!
